This is my first blog entry here and I guess it's as good of a place as any to share with everyone my first crash experience with my new Parkzone T-28.
So I was having a fantastic afternoon of flying with my wife and son when I decided to fly my Trojan straight into a massive oak tree. I can only really attribute the crash to a depth perception issue honestly because I didn't even think I was close to the tree when it happened. Lucky for me the way it crashed there was very minimal damage. I had to buy a new horizontal stab and epoxy one of the plastic fittings back on the main wing but otherwise it had almost no visible damage. Up to that point I was very proud of the fact that I had never crashed that plane after a good handful of flights so it ended up being more of a bruise to my ego than to the plane.
Been in RC for about 24 years but only recetly got into planes. Most of my interest prior was in boats but as soon as I worked up the nerve to try and fly a plane I was hooked for life.
